Pat yourself on the back for surviving the craziest year not just in our personal lives, in our community or even the world but in history. In late 2019, astrologers around the world were already warning people of difficult and troublesome 2020 planetary transits and I even posted on my own IG stories telling my followers to be careful about their travels and also possible upcoming calamities.

As we are all humans who never imagined we'll live through a 'zombie apocalypse' (at least outside of fiction), many astrologers — including myself — assumed that calamities meant the bushfires in Australia, the flood in Jakarta or a volcano eruption somewhere in the world. I am an eternal optimist and prefer spreading good vibes instead of attracting bad jujus. However, this year did (mildly) shake my belief system and put into use 10 years of my spiritual lessons to help family, clients, friends, and fans around me. A crisis will always affect everybody.

What I learned this year is that life is all about balance; we need to plan ahead but at the same time, not over-plan things. Life is all about 50 per cent of calculated risk but you also need hope and faith to bring you through difficult times.

On Monday, 14 December, a solar eclipse will occur in Sagittarius. Sagittarius is the sign of positivity (as it’s ruled by Jupiter), exploration, higher learning, philosophy, and seeking adventure. After all, we’ve been through this year, nothing can surprise us anymore, eh? This eclipse will teach us that when we hit rock bottom, the only way is UP! So push yourself to explore and uncover your hidden skills and talents.

On Saturday, 19 December, the lucky planet Jupiter will be joined by the humanitarian Aquarius. Friendship and communities will be an important theme for next year. Leave the house, join a local meeting or go to a party you've always wanted. The friends that you make now will play a big part in your future life.

2020 ends with a major celestial phenomenon called the Great Jupiter-Saturn conjunction on Monday, 21 December. What will happen will trigger major global and personal changes. This conjunction will happen in the sign of Aquarius, the sign that rules rebelliousness, community, humanitarianism, and the collective. Like-minded communities will start forming and start to champion their uniqueness. Aquarians are people who can be weird but they love rebelling against the norm as they don’t believe in being carbon copies of the people around them. In 2021, always choose you — be yourself because everyone else is taken.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all of you! Here are other things to expect based on your sign.

Aries ♈

March 21- April 19

This month, you may be acknowledging strong emotions or hidden influences that, if released, can bring positive change. Clearing these past issues may need a slow, gentle approach.

Taurus ♉

April 20 - May 20

There may be something you’ve had to learn or are in the process of learning the hard way, which has brought confusion and even panic. You are in a stronger position than you think. Turn inward and connect with your personal power and follow your inner guidance.

Gemini ♊

May 21 - June 20 

This month, you will feel ideas being magnified. There will be an increase in emotions, ideas, and sensitivity that reassures you can manifest your wishes. You may experience a creative surge and enter a dreamy, imaginative phase that offers new insights.

Cancer ♋

June 21 - July 22

Disappointment leads to a recognition of your worth. A relationship may not be what you had hoped, but if you fortify yourself from within, you may assert your identity and creativity doing work that you love. A particular skill or talent brings you deserved rewards.

Leo ♌

July 23 - August 22 

This month, you will have the ability to manifest what you want and build upon what you have by following and knowing your true purpose. A new journey begins, and major changes await. You are protected while you follow your path, and you are blessed with clarity; you will see exactly where you need to go.

Virgo ♍

August 23 - September 22

December brings you a new relationship and an opportunity to heal the old wounds of your heart. Self-love and self-esteem flourish, and you share love unconditionally with others. You receive loving support in your endeavours. It is also a month of forgiveness.

Libra ♎

September 23 - October 22

You are inspired to take an idea a step further or leap into a new creative venture. Your insights multiply and you feel connected spiritually while making new connections with people as your network expands. It’s a great time for analysing a situation from all angles.

Scorpio ♏

October 23 - November 21

For you, December is a quiet phase; things move slowly. The changes you want to see will happen, but gradually, when the timing is right. You may feel a need to retreat to conserve your energy, to withdraw so you can recharge. Be patient and all will become clear.

Sagittarius ♐

November 22 - December 21 

You can heal old wounds and have the relationships you deserve. You may need to forgive yourself, but do not feel that you must take responsibility for everything; believe that you deserve good things. Appreciate, too, the love and comfort around you.

Capricorn ♑

December 22 - January 19

The last month of 2020 brings the gift of love and sees you finding your true passion in life. This may be expressed within a relationship or in acts of service, from showing compassion for others to teaching or healing. You are now in a position not only to attract love but to discover your deepest motivations.

Aquarius ♒

January 20 - February 18

Spiritual connections are important to you this month and you may have to make changes to create more security for yourself. This may mean you see what or who is supportive now and what must stay in the past; you will gently be able to let go of what you no longer need. New horizons beckon.

Pisces ♓

February 19 - March 20

The word of the month for you is Communication, so it is time to express your ideas. You may need to find a way to translate a concept into plain language, or in relationships, speak the truth as you see it. The month can show problems being solved and a determination to break new ground.
